The Apology


Jemme MD Art

I don't know how many times I have to tried to reach you,

To say what I feel and for you to hear it,

I don't know how many times I begged for forgiveness,

kneeling at your feet with a pain in my heart…


I don't know how many times I have left you feeling worthless,

but I am guessing it is far from a few and more like a lot…

I don't know how many times I have looked at you intensely and thought to myself,

you are just not enough.

I don't know how many times I have sat on my own,

reminding myself of how much you have done for me,

To just turn right around and hurt you again.


I don't know how many times I have left you feeling useless, defeated, unwanted and feeling alone…

With no one to turn to and nowhere to go.

I want to apologise for treating you badly,

I want to say it is the last time and I want this to change,


I want you to know that I love you deeply and I know you have carried me all of this way....


I am sorry I thought of you,

as ugly and ageing, wasting and weak,

unattractive and ready

for the scrap heap…


As I take a deep breath,

I look into the mirror, I am ready to start loving you the way you

deserve.
